Laurence Bradshaw (1899–1978) was an English sculptor, printmaker, and artist.  He is most famous for being the sculptor who created the bust of Karl Marx for his Tomb in Highgate Cemetery. During his career, he also painted posters for Transport London, the Spanish International Brigades, the British-Soviet Friendship Society, and also the Marx Memorial Library.

Bradshaw designed the whole of Marx's monument including the plinth and the calligraphy of the texts on the monument, but did not sign the finished work. Bradshaw considered that his design must be "...not a monument to a man only but to a great mind and a great philosopher."
